Match Report

Eng Wheelchair

On the second day of competition, England claimed the title in spectacular style defeating Scotland and Wales without conceding a single score.

They were firing on all cylinders as they beat Scotland in a ten try 50-0 rout in the first game of the final day. The English raced into a 24-0 lead at the break with Medway Dragons’ Nik Brookes landing 3 of his 4 tries before the hooter.

Brookes completed his tally two minutes into the break and two scores from Chris Greenhalgh and a try from Merseyside’s Mike Stevenson sealed the comprehensive result.

Ireland featured next against Scotland and 16 year old Joshua Gardner opened the scoring as he touched down in the corner for a 4-0 Ireland advantage. The lead didn’t last for long as Declan Beddis crashed over for the Scots to level the scores.

Beddis put Scotland in front with his second try of the game as he picked up a loose ball and crossed over. Seconds before the break, Jacob Robinson broke through the line and pulled the scores back to honours even. At halftime, the teams were all square at 8-8.

The second half was a tight and tense affair until Scotland tired towards the end. In the closing minutes Jodie Boyd Ward sealed Ireland’s sole victory of the tournament as she slammed the ball down to complete a 14-8 victory.

England and Wales were undefeated from 2 games heading into the decisive match of the competition. England’s Brookes continued his impressive scoring run as he was first to put points on the board for the English.

Joe Coyd doubled the advantage as he weaved through the Welsh defence and grounded the second try of the game for an 8-0 head start. After the break further scores from Coyd and Stevenson and a fantastic break from Ian Kenny completed a 34-0 Championship winning success.
